Here’s the short answer: It depends. If you ask me whether cam websites are fun to be at? Hell yes! If you want to know why read here confira o Live Cam Link aqui. If you ask me whether you should pay for it or not? I can’t give you a straight answer.

The first thing you have to look at is whether you have the financial capacity to pay for such services. Are you in a place where you can afford to spend money on extras? Then, by all means, give it a shot, and I’m sure you’ll love it. If you can’t even buy your own groceries at this point, best, try your luck next time.

Or better yet, stick to free but 100% legit cam websites – they’re loads of fun, and they also won’t break the bank! I’ll tell you more about them later after I made sure of one thing: Do you even understand what cam sites are?

What is a cam website?

For all you noobs thinking, “Why the hell is this guy talking about webcams? Cam site? A place that sells webcams or something? Big deal.”

If you are thinking along those lines too, then I feel sorry for all the years you were oblivious about the existence of these ultimate websites for adults. There’s no way in hell I’d spend my time writing about websites that sell webcams. 

By cam sites, I’m talking about sexy girls fulfilling every man’s fantasy on the other side of your computer screens. I swear this thing is so hot someone ought to change that “A” in cam to “U” (I know you know what I mean!).

Anyway, for the sake of explaining to all our readers here, cam (short for webcam) sites are online entertainment platforms made by adults, for adults (https://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/22/technology/intimacy-on-the-web-with-a-crowd.html). I’m sure you have scoured the internet for every porn site in existence, and by now, you are probably pretty bored of seeing the same scenarios over and over again?

Seriously, a bullied kid gang banged by a whole football team?

An office secretary getting hot and heavy with her stern-looking boss?

NEXT, PLEASE! These fantastical stories are for boys who are still oblivious to the kinks and fetishes the adult world has to offer. Also, just admit that porn actors are not really the best at what they do, aka “acting.” Everything looks so forced and impersonal that any guy who’s spent hours watching adult videos would sleep on it. 

Cam websites offer something different – a sexually arousing experience in real-time.

Live vs. Pre-recorded porn

Don’t you feel weird watching porn from 2005? Like man, you are jerking off some hot girl who’s probably in her late forties now and has grandkids (unless you are into that kind of thing). When you watch porn films and shows, you don’t even know when those videos were shot! It’s okay when you don’t think too much about it – but when you do, it’s just kind of awkward.

Also, porn flicks don’t even care about you. You are like a third-party peeping on something that you shouldn’t be watching (although that’s kind of hot too, now that I think about it). Anyway, if you are the type of guy who’s hungry for attention, being a passive, horny observer may not work out well for you.

This is why cam sites reign supreme among adult pleasure materials on the net. They have piping hot girls live on camera, making your fantasies come alive in real-time. They also talk and engage with you, so you are not just there to peep without permission. They 100% know you’re watching, and they proceed to give you a great show anyway!

Many cam sites offer free admission, so you can check out different rooms without having to pay half your life savings! If you’re looking to release a lot of steam, free webcam sites are the way to go. 

Now, if you want those girls to do something for you, it becomes a different story. Cam sites thrive from customers’ tips. So, when your fave girl is giving you some love, you might as well give her some back to show your support!

Anyway, you can always check out free cam sites online – just be sure to do your research before paying anyone anything!

LOS ANGELES – A federal judge in Albuquerque sentenced a Torreón man to 12 years and five months in prison for driving his car while intoxicated and causing an accident in 2018 that resulted in the death of three people and serious injuries to three others.

Allen Lewis, 26, agreed to plead guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter and assault of a minor with a deadly weapon in August of 2019. Sentencing was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to court records, Navajo Police learned just after midnight on April 17, 2018, of the two-car accident that occurred on Route 9 between Pueblo Pintado and Tinnian, New Mexico. Initial reports said that two minors and one adult died at the scene.

Three survivors were flown to the University of New Mexico Trauma Center in Albuquerque. Court records listed the driver of the other vehicle as a 41-year-old woman with the initials of M.N.S. The passenger seat was occupied by a 42-year-old man with the initials of J.B. There were three minors in the back seat, ages 14, 10 and four. Police interviewed a couple after the accident who said they were driving on Route 9 about 9:10 p.m. when they came upon an accident involving two cars.

They said they observed five people in one vehicle, all of whom seemed to be seriously injured. The female witness said she then checked the other vehicle and found a man later identified as Lewis inside. She told police that he appeared to be intoxicated. She said she flagged down an oncoming vehicle and asked them to call 911. Dead at the scene were the two adults in the first car and their 14-year-old daughter.

The two other children were among those airlifted to the hospital. Lewis was also airlifted to the hospital. The extent of the injuries for the three survivors was not noted. A preliminary investigation at the scene revealed that the Lewis vehicle was driving north on Route 9 when his car swerved into the wrong land in front of the car containing the family. The driver tried to avoid contact but was unsuccessful.

The Lewis vehicle struck the other vehicle on the passenger side. Later, hospital staff informed police that Lewis had a blood alcohol level of .147 when he was admitted three hours after the accident.

A couple of days later, Lewis was interviewed at the hospital. He told police he had left Crownpoint about 8:30 p.m. and had stopped along the road to consume approximately 16 ounces of alcohol. He said he must have gone back on the road after that but he didn’t remember doing so. He said what he remembered was going to sleep after he drank the alcohol and then waking back up in the ambulance.

In his plea agreement with the U.S. Attorney’s Office, he sought a prison sentence of 12 years so the final sentencing was only five months higher. A sentencing memo said he had no criminal record before the accident.

His attorney described Lewis as “hard-working, kind and quiet with a gentle spirit.” He didn’t drink until he was 21 and he quit drinking a little later when he realized it was causing problems with his life and relationship with other people. But as is common among alcohol abusers, the first time he quit drinking was not the last time he quit.

His physical handicaps, however, caused him to struggle every day of his life, causing him to start drinking again in 2017, his attorney said. The memo said Lewis suffers from a rare ailment that “cases him to suffer headaches, vertigo and dizzy spells throughout the day.”

He also suffers from tinnitus, which causes him to hear clicks and buzzes throughout the day. The condition also amplifies any loud sounds that occur in his immediate surroundings. As a result, he is not able to work around machinery. Although he had three years of college, these health problems prevented him from getting a job and from 2015 until his arrest in 2018, he stayed at home acting as a caregiver for his grandmother.

The memo said Lewis is ready to accept the consequences of his actions on that day but “there is no amount of time he can spend incarcerated that would heal the wounds of the profound grief” of the family of those killed and who continue to suffer. He said after he serves his sentence, he hopes to get his college degree and then work in the home health field.

Jewelry seller’s repeat violations lead to arrest

By Bill Donovan
Special to the Times

LOS ANGELES – A Tuba City woman is facing federal charges for selling merchandise at the Grand Canyon without a permit. Sandra Manygoats, no age given, was arrested on Feb. 8 by a park ranger who came upon her selling jewelry to tourists. Usually a crime like this results in a citation but Manygoats was arrested because this was not the first time she had been found in the park selling without a permit.

Park Ranger Shane Barton said he was patrolling the park when he saw Manygoats surrounded by three blankets which had Navajo jewelry taped on them. He said he also saw prices near each item.

When Manygoats saw Barton, she began rolling up the blankets and stopped when Barton told her to leave the blankets alone. While checking her identification, Barton asked her if she had ever been cited in the past for selling without a permit. She responded that she had been cited before but that was a long time ago. She added that she knew it was illegal. But when Barton checked up on her, he discovered that there was an outstanding warrant for her arrest for a previous citation for selling without a permit.

Usually, persons are cited and not arrested but since she had failed to show up to deal with the previous hearing, she was arrested. Selling without a permit carries a fine of $530. Park records showed that Manygoats was cited on July 29, 2019 after being caught by another park ranger selling jewelry to tourists without a permit.

In this case, the ranger saw her actually talk to several tourists and exchange jewelry for money with two of them. He checked the park’s records and found she had been given a verbal warning to stop selling jewelry. She said at that time she realized that selling jewelry without a permit was not allowed.

Shiprock man gets 15 years for murder

By Bill Donovan
Special to the Times

LOS ANGELES – A Shiprock man who pleaded guilty to murdering another Shiprock man has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison.

Zachariah Stanley Joe, 29, was arrested on Jan. 3, 2019, in connection with the stabbing death of a 33-year-old man identified in court records only as B.M.M. The court records indicate that there were several witnesses to the altercation between the two men. One of the witnesses said he was drinking alcohol with B.M.M. the afternoon he was killed.

The drinking took place at the witness’s home near the That’s A Burger restaurant in Shiprock. In the early evening hours Joe had texted him saying he was leaving his job at Burger King and wanted to come over.

He arrived a little later “intoxicated and extremely upset,” according to the report, about being fired that day from his job. He continued to complain about losing his job throughout the evening, said the witness, and at one point stuck B.M.M. across the face, knocking him into a wood-burning stove and then onto the floor. He said Joe started heading for B.M.M. again planning to continue the beating but the witness said before he got there, the witness intervened, punching Joe in the face several times.

The witness said he then wrestled Joe to the ground, giving B.M.M. time to leave the residence. He said Joe then locked the door with him inside and B.M.M. and the witness outside. The witness said he then heard a lot of noises coming from inside his house indicating Joe was searching his kitchen cabinet drawers by opening them in a violent manner. The witness said he was so upset that his house had been invaded that he ran to Joe’s house nearby and broke a window.

When he got back to his house, he said he saw Joe standing over B.M.M.’s body. He said two other people showed up a little later to take B.M.M. to the hospital. A little later the police arrived and arrested him for breaking the window at Joe’s house.

One of the persons who took B.M.M. to the hospital told FBI agents later that he was driving with a friend when they saw Joe beating up B.M.M. He said he saw Joe standing and kicking B.M.M. while he was on the ground.

He said he got out of his car and approached Joe and pushed him back. He said he observed B.M.M. to be unresponsive and then heard Joe say something like B.M.M. had been stabbed. As the two were putting B.M.M. into their car, they realized that B.M.M. was bleeding under his many layers of clothes. Later when police searched the residence for evidence, they found that the wood-burning stove had been knocked off its base.

They also discovered that one of the kitchen knives was missing. In his plea agreement, Joe admitted he had stabbed B.M.M. in “callous and wanton disregard for human life.” According to court records, B.M.M. had been stabbed 10 times in the chest and neck. He died shortly after he reached the hospital. Joe was arrested that night and charged with murder. In the plea agreement, he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

Injured hiker rescued off Mt. Elden

KAFF News

FLAGSTAFF – There was a search and rescue attempt Feb. 11 in the area of the Fat Man’s Loop Trail on the south side of Mt. Elden in East Flagstaff. Coconino County Sheriff’s officials say search and rescue crews, with aid from a DPS helicopter, located an injured hiker who was stranded on the mountain. Rescuers did their best to find the injured hiker by using information from the man’s cell phone to call 911 prior to his phone dying. They also gathered tips from people in the area.

Crews were unable to bring the man off the mountain that night so rescue personnel and a paramedic with the Flagstaff Fire Department made sure he was comfortable and stayed with him overnight until they could short haul him off the mountain the next morning.

The patient and crew were given sleeping bags, warm clothing, a warm meal and liquids, along with pain medication. Once off the mountain, the hiker was taken to Flagstaff Medical Center and was treated for a severely broken ankle.

Once the hiker was taken off the mountain, conditions became too windy to bring rescue crews down by helicopter. They hiked to the top of Mt. Elden and were taken off the mountain by tracked vehicles from off or Mount Elden Lookout Road.

ELKLAND TOWNSHIP – A spokesman for the Pennsylvania State Police confirmed on Thursday that two state soldiers were put on administrative leave after soldiers fired their service guns, killing Kevin Michael Norton, 60 years old, at his Elkland Township residence while serving an arrest warrant on Friday. Morning.

State Police have said that administrative leave of soldiers is a protocol for all soldiers when investigating their use of their weapons in the line of duty. The administrative leave removes the soldiers from involvement in investigations and field work but allows the soldiers to continue working in the Laporte barracks. It is commonly referred to as an office service. As long as the investigation into the incident on Friday morning reveals no wrongdoing in the involvement of the soldiers, the soldiers will be removed from administrative leave once the investigation is completed, state police said.

Soldiers arrived at 521 Cott’s Road in Elkland Township around 10:30 a.m. Friday morning to place Norton under arrest after he failed to report to Columbia County Correctional Facility for a sentence from six to 23 and a half months, as ordered by a Sullivan County Court.

Norton was initially arrested on several torts relating to the theft of several items from a nearby cabin, but pleaded guilty only to one misdemeanor charge after an agreement was reached with the Sullivan County District Attorney’s Office. Although the district attorney and Norton’s attorney agreed to a probation sentence on the initial conviction, the court ordered Norton to report to jail to serve his sentence.

Norton has appealed to the court and to a Pennsylvania superior court to seek bail or house arrest because of his compromised health and age which would put him in danger of death if he he was contracting the COVID-19 virus in prison. Norton has received support from the district attorney’s office, his family, the Forksville community and crime victims who have requested a term of probation according to court documents. The appeals were dismissed by Sullivan / Wyoming County President, Justice Russell D. Shurtleff and the Superior Court.

On Friday morning, the soldiers were accompanied by Sullivan County Sheriff Bobby Montgomery and Deputy Chief Daniel Strailey, state police said.

State Police said on the examination that law enforcement officers identified themselves as police officers when they arrived at Norton’s residence. Norton was inside his garage working on a tractor.

Upon contacting Norton, the police spotted a shotgun inside the garage and told Norton not to grab it.

According to police, Norton then took the shotgun and “leveled” it towards law enforcement. That’s when the police shot Norton.

Police said Norton did not shoot his gun.

Norton was pronounced dead in an ambulance by Sullivan County Coroner Wendy Hastings at 11:16 am Hastings said Norton died of multiple gunshot wounds.

A representative from the Sullivan County District Attorney’s Office told the review that the office is investigating the incident with state police, but the office will not comment on any open investigations. District Attorney Leonard Simpson will decide whether the shooting of the soldiers was justified and whether to file a complaint.

These sites in southern King County will reach those most at risk for COVID-19 and face barriers to accessing the vaccine through traditional health systems.

Public health says it has received enough doses of the state’s vaccine to begin operating the two sites at 500 doses per day, six days a week. These sites will allow King County to scale up vaccination efforts quickly and serve the wider community when more vaccines become available.

The Kent and Auburn sites are by appointment only and will be open Monday through Saturday, 8:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Start Saturday January 30 at 8 a.m., residents can register for an appointment on the Public Health vaccine website, Get vaccinated in King County.

“I would like to thank the county for accepting Kent on their offer to use the Accesso ShoWare Center to provide vaccines to our community,” said Mayor Dana Ralph. “The sooner we can stock up and administer the vaccine, the sooner we can put COVID-19 in our rearview mirror and move towards a cure. It has truly been a team effort between the County, the Town of Kent, public health officials and providers. I am delighted that Kent and South King County are helping to restore a healthy and vibrant community. “

Reaching out to vulnerable members of our community
People aged 75 and over have experienced much higher hospitalization and death rates from COVID-19 than any other group and face more challenges getting vaccinated, such as transportation barriers and a more limited internet access. In King County, 66% of deaths from COVID-19 were among those aged 75 and over, compared to those 65 to 74, who account for 19% of total deaths.

Although the vaccine supply remains very limited, the Kent and Auburn sites will focus on vaccinating the most at-risk South King County residents aged 75 and over, people unable to live independently. and their caregivers. Availability of appointments will expand to people aged 65 to 74 as vaccine supply increases. Seniors in southern King County are at particularly high risk, as rates of COVID-19 in many areas of southern King County have been almost twice the county average.

“This is a coordination between the county government and partners across the region to set up community vaccination sites,” the executive Constantine said. “I share the frustration of not having enough vaccines from the manufacturers, but we are committed to building the distribution infrastructure to get eligible people vaccinated quickly and equitably as soon as these doses are available, and to expand the capacity. before the increase in supply. “

“With a limited vaccine supply, we need to get the most out of every dose that arrives in King County,” said Patty Hayes, director of public health – Seattle and King County. “The new high-volume vaccination sites will help us deliver a life-saving vaccine to King County residents most at risk. We are taking a fair approach by starting in the part of our county that has been hit hardest by COVID-19. I am grateful to the Constantine Executive and King County Council for County Investment and our community partners for making this effort possible.

Registration information
The Kent and Auburn sites are by appointment only and will be open Monday through Saturday, 8:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Beginning Saturday, January 30 at 8 a.m., residents can register for an appointment on the Public Health website on vaccines, Get vaccinated in King County.

Currently, vaccine supplies and appointments are limited. Residents may experience delays, or it may take a long time for appointments to become available due to anticipated high demand. It will become easier as the vaccine supply increases.

Immunization efforts to date
The number of people who have received at least one dose of the vaccine continues to increase. In King County, as of January 28, 174,000 people had received at least one dose. King County, along with partners in the medical system, have made great strides in immunizing healthcare workers, staff and residents of long-term care facilities, including 100% of nursing home residents. King County nurses.

Public health is also coordinating mobile vaccination teams with local fire departments to reach most-at-risk adults who cannot reach vaccination sites, including staff and residents of adult family homes and children. vulnerable seniors living in low-income seniors housing and permanent supportive housing.

Current supplies are not sufficient to meet needs. Doses entering Washington are insufficient to reach eligible adults. King County has approximately 300,000 people newly eligible for the vaccine under Phase 1B1, which includes people over 65 years of age. But in the week starting Jan. 25, King County received just 22,000 first doses. This is sufficient for 1 in 12 eligible people.

As the supply remains uncertain, King County is working closely with businesses and community partnerships to be ready to set up multiple vaccine access points in King County.

As the May pub date for Amanda Sellet’s romantic comedy YA According to the rules approached, Sellet knew she was going to be one of the hundreds of writers to launch first novel during novel coronavirus outbreak. There would be no in-person reading, no gathering of friends and family. Sellet wondered whether to organize a virtual launch and finally concluded that there was only one way to do it.

“I decided the answer would only be yes if I could think of something fun to do, preferably with a less supervised vibe than the wonderful world of webcams,” Sellet said.

Inspired by Some good news, the popular social media video series by actor-director John Krasinski that sparked viewers’ minds with positive stories during coronavirus quarantines, Sellet created a literary version that she posted on youtube to celebrate the release of his book. “The call of SGN was that he didn’t take himself too seriously and that the DIY aesthetic left some room for error, ”said Sellet. “Plus, I really liked the spirit of the ensemble, which seemed to be, ‘What can I do during this difficult time to lighten the mood? “”

Sellet’s version, called Some news from the book, opens with a reconstruction of the Masterpiece theme, played by Sellet’s sister-in-law, a horn player from the New York Philharmonic. Authors Miranda Asebedo, Megan Bannen, Tessa Grafton, Adib Khorram, and Natalie C. Parker make cameos, as do Sellet’s daughter and daughter-in-law.

Video participants judge Sellet’s book by the cover and show the pets’ reactions to the book. In accordance with the Masterpiece theme, actress Kathryn Pogson, known for her stage career and role in the cult classic Brazil, read the first chapter.

While Sellet has an MA in Film Studies from New York University, making the film required the support of her husband and daughter. “I took a summer film production course,” she said, “but it was so long ago that editing involved cutting the physical film and sticking it with duct tape. “

In return for her technical assistance, Sellet’s daughter was given the opportunity to subject her mother to a series of quick questioning on camera. “What I didn’t expect was that she would refuse to show me the questions up front on the grounds that it would be more ‘organic’ that way,” she said.

The final video is something Sellet cherishes. “I don’t think I realized how much it would look like a group party, thanks to the incredible talent and generosity of my friends and family. I loved seeing their faces and feeling like we were doing something creative together, even though we couldn’t be in the same space, ”she said. Sellet said she hopes to make more videos, and she encourages other writers to do something similar in mind for their own launches. “Whenever possible, do something that brings you joy and feels true to who you are,” she said. “My launch video is exactly as wacky and absurd as I am in real life and in my writing, so I at least hit the truth in the ad.”
